Free Child Care

PEERS aims to prevent child abuse and neglect by equipping parents with the skills they need to raise happy and healthy children. The child care program has been designed for parents who need temporary child care due to appointments and/or respite care.

Important Things To Know

  • Children should arrive no later than 9:15am and must be picked up by 1:00pm.

  • Please send a labeleds lunch or snack with drink for your child (we CANNOT mix bottles or warm up food; lunchables, sandwiches, fruit and other "finger" foods are suitable).

  • When weather permits we do play outside, so apply any sunscreen or insect repellent before you arrive at PEERS (we CANNOT apply these to the child).

  • Because space is limited and we fill up quickly, we ask that if for any reason you cannot make it for your reservation, please call the office and cancel. We do keep a waiting list and this allows us to call and offer your spot to someone else.
